What's the highest frequency that is audible to you at a reasonable level?
I think I screwed up my ear...I'm 16 and the highest I can hear is around 14~15k

Interesting thread, wonder why no1 ever created a poll for this yet! Perhaps would belong more into the sound science section though. For me about 17kHz at low-moderate volume level and I'm 24 yo. I bet 16 - 17kHz will probably be the average but it'll depend much on the average age of head-fiers.
My "actual" hearing peaks at about 18k (with a bit of a dip around 16k). I don't hear anything at 20k, yet sometimes stuff around 21-22k I don't actually hear it but I start to feel agitated, which I think is just the bone/ear structure picking up vibrations but it just translates into nerve sensation rather than "sound".
Consider yourself lucky, I'm 16 and I can barely hear around 14-15kHz. It's kind of depressing for me. I've always listened to music at a reasonable level and rarely expose myself to loud noises.
